Welcome to my personal site.
Okay, I did it. I signed up for the ’10 Arizona Ironman, and yesterday I bought “Training plans for Multisport Athletes”. No turning around now. Please, please, please pray for me. From now till November will be a wild ride.
Good news. I am dedicating each leg of the race to a different cause.
When swimming every stroke counts. So that leg will be dedicated to Stroke Awareness.
To be an endurance cyclist, people need to fine tune their skill and training, and they really-really-really got to want to ride 100+ miles in one day. That dedication is similar to the desire of becoming financially independent. So this leg will be dedicated to Financial Literacy.
As for running, this will be my biggest challenge. Thankfully I recently met Gail Devers, the Track and Field Olympian. She talked about fighting Graves Disease (an autoimmune disorder that leads to an overactive thyroid gland). This disease almost caused her feet to be amputated. Yet she stayed focused. She kept running. She followed her dream. With that inspiration, this leg is dedicated to Thyroid Issues, and when I don’t want to run, I’ll think of her.
